    so good! do you mix the vocals also?

    TheEnlightenedOne
    Reply by TheEnlightenedOne

    I generally will do all the vocal mixing, but this was actually mainly premixed vocals. I did some tweaks to the chorus, reverb, and the vocal cuts in the end of chorus, but Junior Paes did a great job premixing.

    The tone of the backing track does not match

    That most likely is an error on my part, but if you can elaborate what feels off it will help immensely.

    Thank you so much, I'd not heard of Blancmange until I'd read this comment and I stopped to listen to some of his work and I'm once again honored to be a callback to artists of this style. I thank you a million times over!

    Wooooow Enlightened, this is siiiiick! Very early 90's flavoured...(and a bit of Lady Gaga style too) absolutely like it!

    TheEnlightenedOne
    Reply by TheEnlightenedOne

    Thank you very much! When I was making music around this time I was heavily inspired by Lady Gaga and made some nods to her in my instrumental and background voice (I'm glad you noticed). I was also inspired by Buggles - Video Killed the Radio Star, but wanted something a little new feeling which is what the first part of the second verse describes.

    Kewl!!!

    I'm hearing a bit of the B-52's mixed with Peter Gabriel (Shock the Monkey). Def Devo and Gary Numan, as some others mentioned. This has a great 80s feel.
    Now all you need is some Fitz and the Tantrums vocals to blend the old with the new:

    I'm definitely marking this a fave!

    Cool 8 bit theme!
    But tbh I am not a fan of your choice of synthesizer for the base line, it's a little flat to my ears, but it could just be personal. Cool arrangement though :)

    If you mean the saw synth used for the secondary baseline it is one of my favorites, I didn't use as many threads on it as I usually would, but it was the clean sound I was going for. Thanks though, I'm glad it was at least somewhat intriguing to you :)

    There's a few tracks about tonight with a retro feel going on. The synth bass riff on this one puts me in mind of Gary Numan. Nice groove to it - it definitely needs vocals.

    Reply by TheEnlightenedOne

    I'm loving these references. I am truly honored to have hit the mark of time I was shooting for. Thank you so much. I can't wait to get vocals added to this one. I forgot to list it as collab, I will have to go back and edit that.

    I really like the spacey echoes. Nice and smooth.

    Thanks a lot! I really felt like that instrument deserved that echo and it was the first part that I made in this instrumental, everything else followed around it.

    Sure, better than 1st version, but there are still some stuff to work on.

    Vocals: as Alien rightly told, add a de-esser. Then apply a 4:1 compression (to make the waveform uniform, in this way it avoids that the lower parts are not intelligible and that the higher ones are too strong). Last but not least, add an eq and soften the low-mid frequencies of the voice tone, otherwise, as it is, it still buries parts of the instrumental. After doing all this, you can adjust the overall volume.

    Acoustics: still too weak. Enhance their brilliance. A tad more stereo field needs too.

    Drumstuff: all at the right place but the snare. Volume still too low. If you can't do better with the one you used, add a "80's" one (if you need some samples, i got something :) ) then wide his stereo field and add a longer reverb.

    TheEnlightenedOne
    Reply by TheEnlightenedOne

    Looks like I had to work with another snare, cause the one I was using was at its max potential. I used the compression ratio you mentioned, but had to manually equalize parts of it due to the piano being recorded with the vocals. Added a bit more to fluff it up and further separated the pads. I'm learning a lot, thank you.
